Adopt a Chimpanzee

Do you have a special bond with an FGA chimpanzee? An instant feeling of connection? Or are you just in awe of them? By adopting a chimpanzee here at the sanctuary, your one-time donation of $150 or just $12.50 a month for one year gives freedom for each chimpanzee to live their best life for years to come at their permanent, forever-home. Your adoption package will include an 8×10 photo of the chimpanzee along with his or her extensive biography, a certificate of adoption, a subscription to the FGA newsletter, and an invitation to our annual Sanctuary Tour.

Donations toward individual adoptions go to support the entire family of chimpanzees at Freedom for Great Apes.
Thiele

Calamity Jane (CJ) is a socialite who tends to get along with all of the chimps. If she’s not grooming Emma, she can likely be seen flirting with one of the boys. She’s easily distinguished by her small frame and spiked hair.

Thiele

Jackson is our younger male resident and is often described as being high-spirited and playful.  He enjoys a good game of chase outside. When he’s tuckered out from playing he can often be seen nestled up to a stuffed animal and peering outside the Play House windows.

In Loving Memory Of

Patti was the sanctuary’s matriarch and oldest female. Smart and clever, she was often making and using tools. Her ingenuity helped her get every morsel of food out of the simulated termite mound. She spent most of her time lounging in the sunshine or snuggling in a blanket in her heated “condo.”

Thiele

In Loving Memory Of

Thiele was stoic and socially aware. As a higher-ranking female, she kept her eye on everything her chimp and human friends did. She was a natural nurturer and assumed that role when Emma, the youngest female, arrived at the sanctuary in 2007.

In Loving Memory Of

Topo was the first chimpanzee to retire to the sanctuary. His confidence and poise helped him maintain his alpha status. His success was attributed to his ability to resolve disputes quickly and diplomatically. Known as a master nest builder, using at least five blankets for comfort.
